Follow the Red Nose

Follow the Red Nose

This reindeer-themed game to keep the whole group entertained.

Simple to play and requires no setup. Just show your students the 3 cards on the screen and have them keep their eye on the red nose. Then flip the cards and start shuffling. They have to guess which card is the red nose. You control the speed of the shuffle and which cards to flip. The best part is that you can do a little card trickery and force a card to be the right or wrong card.

How to play

To start, press the 4 key to flip all of the cards at once. This will show the positions of the Red Nose Reindeer and the Plain Reindeer.
Tell your students to follow the Red Nose Reindeer. Press the 4 key again to flip the cards on their faces. Press the left arrow key to set the speed to slow. Then press the spacebar to begin shuffling the cards. Let them shuffle a few times, the press the spacebar again to stop.
Then you ask the students to guess which card is the Red Nose Reindeer. Use the number keys to reveal the cards one by one. Now, you can explain that you’re about to make the game a little more difficult.
Flip all of the cards on their faces. Tap the up arrow key to set the speed to normal. Tap the spacebar to start shuffling. Let it go for a little while and then tap the spacebar again to stop. See if your students can find the Red Nose Reindeer.
Finally, tap the right arrow key to set the speed to fast and start shuffling.
Sometimes you’re going to want to mess with your students and force a result. To do this, tap the ‘R’ key before your flip a card. The next card you flip will be the Reindeer. The same is true with the ‘D’ key for the Plain Reindeer (Donner and Dixon). Make sure that if you decide to force a card, you need to force the other two cards as well. Otherwise, you may end up in a situation where you force the Red Nose Reindeer for the first card, but the Red Nose Reindeer is revealed under the second card.
